This review is from: Next of Kin (Hardcover)
I love the books of Stan Barstow but it is such a shame that so many of them are difficult to find as new copies. Never mind, the second hand/used book market is kept alive by books such as this and what a joy they are. You could be tempted to think that some are written for male readers and some for female readers but I think the writer has written them in such a way that they are equally cherished and poignant for both genders. I have never lived in the areas that he writes about but his descriptive writing is such that one can easily picture the scene and the life style of his characters.
This book is part of a trilogy and therefore it is best to read them in order if you can.
